I blantently stole this idea from my neighbor IT. We both grow the same things peppermint (the peppermint that used to grow in my yard, jumped the fence and now grows in their yard), basil, tomatoes, thyme, etc. Well I noticed that IT or B had put some of the flowering peppermint and green basil in a vase.
Well my house got a little musty so I figured I’d take the idea to slightly change the smell by taking a lot of the basil, flowering peppermint and thyme and setting it in the living room. I think it looks nice, and I can smell mint without having to go outside.
